At Crate Audio, we combine the art of music with the science of sound. For over 25 years, Crate has built its reputation on providing great sounding, durable products in the field of instrument amplification with a high price/performance quotient. Now we proudly offer the Crate Audio line of professional sound reinforcement equipment - designed for the real-world user who demands uncompromising quality, durability, reliable performance, and incredible sound.

This year, we are introducing many exciting new products into the Crate Audio line. These products have all been designed with the musician in mind; the perfect blend of form and function in terms of product design, price, and - most importantly -performance. We strive to bring the most sought-after features, advanced specifications, and sonic enhancements to the end user.

New for 2004, we offer an improved series of our ever-popular SPA professional power amplifiers. These new models feature a variety of available output levels – from 100 to over 2000 watts – all at incredibly affordable prices. And the SPA power amps are still packed with all the desirable features of their predecessors. They represent an outstanding combination of performance, power, and price.

We’ve expanded our CMX series of mini-mixers to include the new CMX42FX, a feature-packed compact mixer that incorporates on-board digital effects. The new PS series speaker enclosures feature cast-frame low frequency components, titanium horn drivers, and extremely high power handling. The new PSM6P powered speaker breaks the price/performance barrier for small powered speakers with incredible fidelity. The new P series subs offer ground shattering low end without rattling your wallet. And the new TV100 “Traveler ” portable PA represents the first expandable travel PA available on the market.

One thing that hasn’t changed at Crate Audio is our commitment to quality. Our engineering and design teams utilize the most stringent testing processes, including computer modeling and design, TEF speaker testing, and quality-controlled manufacturing. These and other production methods provide you, the customer, with our assurance of incredible sounding, rugged products that will provide years of use & enjoyment. Crate Audio products are found in a myriad of venues, including schools, churches, stages, rehearsal halls and studios. Crate Audio products are continually found anywhere that music, sound, and people come together.

Crate pioneered the transferable 5/2 warranty within the music industry, which covers electronics for 5 years and speaker components for 2 years. We can offer this type of warranty because we design and build our products for real-world use. We conduct all product development and testing in our Research & Training Center in Saint Louis, MO., USA. All components are carefully selected and tested, then shipped for final assembly to one of our manufacturing facilities. We utilize stringent quality control procedures including individual production unit testing where a product is pulled from the warehouse, unboxed, and thoroughly evaluated by one of our technicians. Most of our technicians are musicians as well, which allows us to put these products “through the paces” to ensure end-user product viability.

Crate Audio products are designed for the real world - so whether spoken, sung, or played, your message will come through loud and clear.

Crate Audio–Make Yourself Heard.
